TORONTO May 13 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell hard at the opening bell on Wednesday as commodity prices eased and as weaker-than-expected U.S. retail sales data hurt investor sentiment.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 122.68 points, or 1.22 percent, to 9,955.02. All 10 sectors were lower, led by more than 2 percent drops in both energy and financials. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
